Breastfeeding and decreased risk of childhood asthma
Human milk is the best source of nutrition for all infants, and breastfeeding has numerous short- and long-term benefits for both infants and mothers. Nutricia Research supports breastfeeding by investigating the unique complexities of human milk. We want to better understand its composition and related benefits so we can use it as inspiration to develop innovative nutritional options for mothers who are unable to fully breastfeed.
“We’ve spent over 40 years understanding the composition of human milk and the related benefits of breastfeeding. It’s complex analytical research that we find challenging and fascinating in equal measure - we are constantly discovering new things.”
